Which destinations do you go back to again and again?

I have three favorite destinations that I can keep going back to for the rest of my life. Going on an African safari has always sparked an immeasurable amount of joy in my soul; it truly fills my heart the most. In terms of narrowing it down to a country, Italy does it for me year after year. But Paris is the city I return to every year…I can never get enough.
